Hi all, just an update on the 2020 simulation!

After meeting with the organising committee and taking into account your suggestions/commentaries, we have decided on the following details regarding the eSheffWHO 2020 Conference: Health in A Digital World:

  • Theme: Health in A Digital World
  • Date: May 1-2, 2020 (Friday & Saturday)
  • Time: 11 AM – 3:30 PM  British Summer Time
  • Registration Fee: 3 GBP for Regular Tickets and 5 GBP for Tickets bought from April 20 (secured platform fee + officially stamped certificate)
  • Payment Website: Ticket Link
  • Registration Form: Registration Form
  • Platform: TBA

Please take notice that the earlier you register for the event, the quicker we can assign you a Member State role to help you get started on writing the Position Paper, which helps you qualify for the awards.

Explanation Note on the Registration Fee:

On the survey and previous post we shared it was stated that the entire event will be free of charge. However, we were not able to factor the costs of the platform which is guaranteed to be more secure than our previous platform plan (Zoom). Because of this, the members of the Committee decided to cover the majority of the platform costs, and ask every participant for a smaller registration fee. Further information regarding the platform guidance will be sent out shortly. 

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience(s) caused by this decision. We are doing our best to provide each and everyone the best opportunity and experience possible from this activity.

By covering your registration fee, you will be provided with the necessary material to prepare you as a delegate (i.e. secured platform access; certificate; welcome pack). Further, we consider internet security and privacy as important measures for this event, and the organising committee decided to use an end-to-end encrypted platform.

We hope that despite this, your commitment in this unique event will not change.  We are looking forward to meeting you and everyone at the online conference.

We hope you are all staying healthy and happy! 


Dear Distinguished Delegate

At this extraordinary time, due to the complex situation regarding the COVID-19 and its serious impact locally and globally, the Organising Committee of the Sheffield World Health Organisation Simulation Conference (SheffWHO Team) would like to inform and update you all of our plan and future steps. 

We take the rapid spread and potential risks imposed by the COVID-19 to all delegates, our speakers, members of staff, volunteers, the university, and the public very seriously. As much as we want to personally meet you all at the event, we highly value your safety, health, and wellbeing. We are in constant monitoring and communication with the school officials, and follow the advice and recommendations of advisors, the Government, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Public Health England.

After consultation and thorough consideration of all factors, the SheffWHO 2020 Team has decided to postpone SheffWHO 2020 conference (27-29 March 2020) until further notice. We understand that many delegates have spent significant resources to attend this conference. Due to this, we aim to offer all delegates an option for a full refund of the purchased conference tickets (both Early Bird and Regular Tickets).

 At present, the SheffWHO 2020 Team is exploring all possible alternative methods in delivering this conference. To do so, we will seek advice from the University of Sheffield, our sponsors and other stakeholders for an appropriate venue. Should the majority of the delegates opt to attend the conference regardless of the succeeding changes, the SheffWHO 2020 Team will provide updates and further information on the registration of the adjusted conference. However, in the meantime, full ticket refunds for all delegates will be processed in the next few weeks. We will do our best and work with the Student Union Office to accelerate the refund process. We will continue to closely monitor the current situation and recommendations from the UK government and the WHO. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by responding to this email.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards, 

SheffWHO 2020 Organization Committee
